What we’re doing
We’ve developed a concept plan for the rest area based on your feedback from our consultation in late 2020.
The proposal for the Michael Kelly rest area includes:
- retaining the mature trees with additional plants
- improving the entry and adding a new kerb ramp for better access
- relocating seats to reduce noise issues and adding a new low brick seating wall
- installing a new painted metal blade fence to improve privacy and park amenity
- improving the turf grass area and adding new shrubs and groundcover plants
- providing more seats and a new water bubbler with a dog bowl.
Why we’re doing this
This is part of our parks renewal program where over the next 10 years we will upgrade more than 60 parks across the City of Sydney area, from small pocket parks to larger local parks.
We’re asking local community groups and residents for their feedback on the concept design. We’re interested in understanding who uses the rest area, what works and what doesn’t. We’d also like to hear any ideas you have for the rest area.
We will report all feedback and design changes to Council, and we will continue to a detailed design. We will keep you updated on the progress of this project.
